Sefton Park June Gardens

Liverpool

This is a fascinatingly varied group of Liverpool gardens. In That Bloomin' Green Triangle, Architecture group Assemble won the Turner Prize 2015 for their work with the four streets. It was the guerrilla gardening of local residents which led to the area's regeneration. See the wild flower meadow in Ducie Street at its peak in June, and beautifully kept back alleys and yards. Two local gardening projects to see: Fern Grove Community garden has raised beds for abundant vegetable growing and the Community Orchard is a quiet haven with glorious planting in early summer at the former Quaker Burial Ground in Arundel Avenue. And opening for the first time, the exquisitely laid out and planted private garden in Sydenham Avenue.

    It will be early summer when Sefton Park Gardens open their gates for the first time this year, giving visitors the chance to see the gardens in June splendour. The Community Orchard and Wildlife garden in Arundel Avenue is a haven of peace hidden behind high walls, and at its best at this time of year. And residents are making good progress at the community garden in Fern Grove, where a new poly tunnel has been established. They will have a beekeeping demonstration at 2 pm and plenty of children's activities. At That Bloomin' Green Triangle the Ducie Street wild flower meadow will be at its peak, bringing bees and butterflies into urban Toxteth. And they'll have impeccable back alleys and yards to visit in the recently refurbished streets. Tours start from The Ducie Street meadow at 1 and 3 pm. Newly open this year is the lovely private garden in Sydenham Avenue: an inspiration to other town gardeners.
